Winemaker Notes

Accordini Igino Le Bessole is an intense garnet color. Black cherry and raspberry aromas. The mouth is full and persistent with a good structure.

Critical Acclaim

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
This dense and concentrated Amarone offers an intense bouquet of marinated cherry, blackberry and tobacco. The palate delivers rich flavors of blackberry, prune, licorice and a touch of carob, along with round tannins and soft acidity. It has layers of flavor and nice depth.

Accordini Igino, Veneto, Italy
Image of winery
The story of the Accordini Igino Winery began in 1821 in the heart of Valpolicella, an area with strong and deeply rooted tradition of viticulture and winemaking. This passion began thanks to an inheritance: three hectares of vineyards, whose wine was produced only for domestic use; the family used to love to spend springs and its spare time in this Cru, called "Le Bessole".

The successful story started here, from a domestic production to a national and international business, thanks to the tireless and devoted work of Guido Accordini, Igino's son, and his wife Liliana, who are managing the winery toward so enological innovation, never forgetting tradition.

From the original three hectares, Accordini Igino Winery currently owns 35 hectares of vineyards in the Valpolicella area.

The beating heart of the winery keeps beating in San Pietro in Cariano, among the Verona hills, just few minutes from Verona center. The lines and style of the original winery have been renovated to adapt to new image and business need of the company, that projects itself in even new expanding businesses and markets.

Here barrels and wood combine with modern lines, welcoming guests to a comfortable and informal location where you could taste Accordini Igino wines, accompanied by local food.

A large and diverse wine region in northeastern Italy, the Veneto is home to a vast array of different styles of wine.

The sub-region of Valpolicella (meaning “valley of cellars” in Italian) is a series of north to south valleys and is the source of Veneto’s best red wine with the same name. Valpolicella—the wine—is juicy, spicy, tart and packed full of red cherry flavors. Corvina makes up the backbone of the blend with Rondinella, Molinara, Croatina and others playing supporting roles. Recioto and Amarone follow the same blending patterns but are made from grapes left to dry for a few months before pressing, resulting in wines that are intense, full-bodied, heady and often, quite cerebral.

Soave, based on the indigenous Garganega grape, is the famous white here—made ultra popular in the 1970s at a time when quantity was more important than quality. Today one can find great values on whites from Soave, making it a perfect choice as an everyday sipper! But the more recent local, increased focus on low yields and high quality winemaking in the original Soave zone, now called Soave Classico, gives the real gems of the area. A fine Soave Classico will exhibit a round palate full of flavors such as ripe pear, apricot, or yellow peach, have smoky and exotic aromas and a sapid, fresh, mineral-driven finish.

Much of Italy’s Pinot Grigio hails from the Veneto, where the crisp and refreshing style is easy to maintain; the ultra-popular sparkling wine, Prosecco, comes from here as well.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
